Of course there are an overwhelming number of positive reviews. I can't foresee upgrading any of my components anytime in the near future, so I'm looking to put the finishing touches on my system so that I can set it and forget it. The anal fool that I can sometimes be tells me the odds that I will buy these are high. But I do have reservations, especially when everything is currently working.
My first response is to say that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". That said, what length(s) do you need for each cable? If 6 foot cables will do then its best to avoid active cables, not because they are any more likely to give you issues, but because they tend to be less "future proof" than passive cables. If you require a much longer cable then an active cable like the Redmere makes more sense.

^^ With HDMI, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

No brainer....get the 105! Best DAC's, and dedicated 2-ch analog board. You'll get a headphone amp too with the 105, if you need it.
